flibble/jlavellin>I agree with you both - however I am not sure which shareholders have the most influence on this. Do not assume they all have equal influence. Reluctantly if a broad boycott is required to resolve this then I'd say so be it.

At the same time though a firm message needs to be sent - and the bluff called.

If Aaron/ROL had a leg to stand on Iyonix would not have happened, ROOL source would never have been released, the dispute which seen an ROL licensed product temporarily taken off the market when Castle challenged ROL and their licensees would not have happened.

It's the same old bluff and bluster - it should be ignored. IMHO ROOL should ready their source and release a ROM image as promised then at least the OS has a fighting chance of further development - otherwise things are very bleak. We've lost the prospect of new native hardware let's not lose the option of a vibrant developing OS as well.
